The aim of this study was to assess the association between temperament and metabolic syndrome markers. Cloninger's Temperament and Character Inventory and clinical examination were carried out in 1997 in the Northern Finland Birth Cohort 1966 (N = 4364 respondents). Novelty seeking was positively associated with waist circumference in both genders.(More)
PURPOSE To demonstrate that paramagnetic elements in fungal colonies can cause hypointensity in MR images. METHODS Aspergillus fumigatus grown in vitro was imaged with CT and MR at the time of initial inoculation and 5 days later. CT and MR images, T2 values, scanning electron microscopy, energy-dispersive analysis, and furnace atomic absorption(More)
BACKGROUND Despite modern pharmacotherapy and advanced implantable cardiac devices, overall prognosis and quality of life of HF patients remain poor. This is in part due to insufficient patient stratification and lack of individualized therapy planning, resulting in less effective treatments and a significant number of non-responders. METHODS AND RESULTS(More)
Anterior cervical decompression for two or more cervical spondylotic levels can be performed using either multiple anterior cervical discectomies and fusion or anterior cervical corpectomy and fusion (ACCF). A variety of options for ACCF implants exist but to our knowledge, there is no clinical data for the use of tantalum trabecular metal implants (TTMI)(More)
An increasing amount of evidence suggests that canonical pathways and standard molecular signature databases are incomplete and inadequate to model the complex behavior of cell physiology and pathology. Yet, many Gene Set Analysis (GSA) studies still rely on these databases to identify disease biomarkers and molecular mechanisms within a specific cell(More)
Because the head slopes both in the sagittal and lateral directions, the brain is one of the anatomical areas which could benefit by the use of 3-dimensional compensators. The fabrication of 3-dimensional compensators is an expensive and complex task, and as such, not widely used. A standard wedge is often employed to compensate for skull curvature when(More)
